Tablet Wins Digital ASME For Best Podcast

You like us, you really like us!

Print Email

Excuse the excitement and bragging, but we just got a text from our editors attending the Digital American Society of Magazine Editors awards ceremony, and: our Vox Tablet podcast series has won the National Magazine Award for Best Podcast! This is our first ASME win. A special congratulations to Senior Editor Sara Ivry and Audio Executive Producer Julie Subrin.

We will now be good sports and digitally shake the hands of the other excellent nominees: Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Harvard Business Review, and IEEE Spectrum.

And feel free to give a listen to those podcasts we submitted to the nominating committee. In case you haven’t heard, they’re award-winning!

“Remembrance Day”: Gregory Warner reports from Rwanda on commemorating the country’s 1994 genocide, with Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day as a template.

“The Queens of Bollywood”: Eric Molinsky discusses the early days of India’s Bollywood movie factories, when most of the leading ladies—from Rose Ezra to Ruby Myers—were Baghdadi Jews.

“Blessed Bluegrass”: Jon Kalish profiles Orthodox bluegrass musician Jerry Wicentowski, whose observance prevents him from weekend gigs, but not from virtuosic guitar work.

Earlier: Tablet is a National Magazine Award Finalist!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

Dear Ms Ivry and Ms Subrin,
I am not at all surprised by the award Tablet won.
I believe that I received Tablet since its inception,
I could be wrong. However, I am from Belgium, and so I assume that I have different look at various things. I was immediately taken by your Podcast.The choice of subjects, its depth, the style and of course the way it is written are quite extraordinary. The subtle intonation of the titles, tell one so much about the
quality of the articles.
And with all of that, you are a Jewish voice !!!
I have sent Tablet to friends and others all over the world with the hope that they would subscribe to this
gift.
I have never commented on anything I read, but here I have to.
Is there a way for me to read about Tablet’s coming to be, and when it first appeared ?
I happen to be super busy, but Tablet is unusual !
Warm regards,
Rachella Genack
